Thanks for the replies! Bosanbo, as for a cut, any idea how I'd find a curl-friendly stylist? I live near Fargo, ND so not a huge area with tons of different stylists. I LOVE my stylist and I know she's open to lots of different/new things. Would love to keep seeing her...

Maybe this is wrong to ask but if I get a curl-friendly cut but still can't get the type of curls I like/want, will the cut make make straight hair look okay still?

Its been a while since I've had really long hair - usually end up cutting it since its so thick so hate how long it takes to dry....but am wondering if adding length would help too? Right now it's a little past my shoulders when straight but shortens up with the curl. Wonder if length would help give me a better look and maybe change the curl?
